Is it spicy, tangy, or smoky-sweet? All of the above, in this nut mix that features orange, Chipotle, brown sugar, and cranberries! This mix is very versatile; you may adjust the ingredients and measurements to suit your taste. You may also use any kind of nuts you have on hand. Last time I mixed almonds with cashews. Tonight I had pecans on hand. These make convenient appy's or just keep around as snacks. Also great packed into little jars for gifts!
